The Great Escape is Europe’s leading festival for new music, bringing together 3000 music industry professionals from across the world to enjoy and experience 400 great new bands, and to take part in the CMU Insights-programmed TGE music business convention.
This year CMU presents six half-day insight strands within The Great Escape convention, each featuring original research, case studies and discussion around a different music business theme. Plus there are CMU-curated programmes of conversations and networking events, the return of the TGE:DIY Day for new talent and the all-new Blueprint conference.
